The "new" boulevard Saint-Laurent is less safe for bikes?

Have you noticed that the all-new boulevard Saint-Laurent has wider sidewalks, and a narrower street?

A narrower street=less safe for bikes.

This used to be such a great street to bike up because the bike "lane" at the side of the street was nice and big.

Now it's not.

Now it's narrow and it's watch out for car doors and stuff.


And while rantmode=on how about we request some more bike parking? And bike-stand-style parking posts on the side streets?

Especially at CocoRico takeout chicken I'd like to securely lock the bike a bit closer to the restaurant. As the restaurant is on a corner, how about converting the parking meter posts around the corner into bike-stand ones?

Boulevard Saint-Laurent is all new, you should go for a WALK on the street.

From wherever you live, bike to boulevard Saint-Laurent and lock your bike and go for a walk.

This is one of the best destinations in the city.
